So... Will Smith is in New York City shooting Men In Black III, and, to accommodate the mega-star, one of the line items on the likely centi-plus-million dollar movie includes a $9,000 a week trailer, that reportedly has 2 floors, a gym, a lounge, a movie room with a 100-inch screen, staff offices, a large bedroom and bathroom. Essentially, it's a home on wheels. And a lot of folks in the area are pissed off at how much space it takes up on the street it sits, apparently causing a few traffic disruptions. The raucous has made headline news over here, and may even be national at this point. I hear that, as of this morning, it's been moved to another location.
